ive had some good luck at making ringtones for my sanyo 7400. im going to buy a new phone

was just wondering which of the current models apart from the 7400 and 9000 , produce a very clear and loud truetone.

 i have a vodafone 7270 and downloaded a truetone from the voda site and it was a very tinny sound compared
to what ive done for my sanyo. so im assuming the telecom nokias are the same..

although im keen on the 6155, i want a phone with a very loud ringer which i think tends to be the sanyo models?

I think the Sanyos are the loudest too.

The 8100 (old model) and the 4920 (slightly old cheap model) were not quite as clear for tru tones in my opinion, but still delivered the goods in terms of volume.

What did you use to make ringtones and the resulting file format out of pure interest?

Sanyo's are fantastic..Very loud, very well designed loudspeakers.

Nokia's are good, Don't think much else supports tru-tones apart from a hyundai or two.

Vodaphones "truetones" are cr4p. They are probably rubbish created by Musiwave whom also create those nasty 4 channel with 4 intruments ringtones that sound nothing likt the original track! I have not heard a good one yet (apart form "Boney-m's rasputin" on the GX10 when it was released, I think they got 7 seconds in that one.)
The codecs vodafone use are more than capable but whoever does them does such a bad job! you are lucky to get 3-5 seconds of song at most, 10 secs of clear music is handled by even the most basic handset (GX10) and most can handle 3 minutes or more.

but.. Vlive is a pile of $%$^ anyway so what do you expect :-) again,,, could be SO MUCH BETTER with just a little care put into it.

heyas paradoxsm

i had itunes installed on my pc when my cousins brought his ipod around to grab some mp3s off me. and i used that
to convert mp3s into mp4s. but couldnt seem to get a smaller size than around 200 kilobytes which at telecom's data rates
meant that a 30 second ringtone cost $10.00. but they sounded good.. but lol the cost was off putting. i had a 7400 and the only
way to get the rington onto the phone was to upload it to a website and browse to that site via wap on the phone.

i used a simple wave editor like goldwave to adjust the equalisation.. like drop the treble slightly to compensate for the lack of bass
on the speakerphone otherwise gets a lil too trebley.

with the 5600 and 9000 ive heard that the mp3s cant be used as ringtones, so how does it work.. convert the mp3s to mp4

then is there a specific folder on the sd card to put the mp4s into so they can be accessed on the phone to assign as a ringtone?

and far as the ringtones from voda live.. man im sure i could do all of them way better lol :-)
